There are around 1500 potentially active volcanoes around the world. Many of them are located along the Pacific which is also famously known as "Ring of Fire".  And most of the active volcanoes are around this area.

Here are the list of Volcanoes that are currently unstable around the world as of January 15, 2020.

1. Aso volcano (central Kyushu, Japan)

Alert level raised to 2. JMA has raised the alert level to 2 on a scale of 1-5 after an increase in gas emissions in February and now increasing seismicity. This is the first significant activity since the powerful explosion in October 2016.



2. Sakurajima (Kyushu, Japan)

Explosive activity continues. Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Tokyo warned about a volcanic ash plume that rose up to estimated 8000 ft (2400 m) altitude or flight level 080 and is moving at 10 kts in E direction.

3. Taal (Luzon, Philippines)

Lava fountains generated 1,000 m dark grey plume and drifted SW. New fissures and cracks were observed in Mahabang Dahilig, Dayapan, Palanas, Sangalang, Poblacion, Lemery, Pansipit, Agoncillo, Mataas and Bilibinwang.
The seismic station records 159 volcano-tectonic earthquakes of which 28 were felt.

Alert level remains at 4 on a scale of 0-5. The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and pyroclastic flows and tsunamis could affect an area of about 14 km distance from the main crater. Explosive eruption is possible within hours to days.

6. Ruapehu (North Island, New Zealand)

GeoNet reported that the activity of volcanic tremor continues at low levels. Measurements of the volcano’s Crater Lake (Te Wai ā-moe) temperature, and chemistry remained consistent in combination with seismic unrest.


Regular gas flights and lake sampling are also undertaken as weather permits.

7. Popocatépetl (Central Mexico)

CENAPRED recorded 3 volcano-tectonic earthquakes at 14:21 local time yesterday, at 07:28 and 07:39 local time today with magnitude M 1.5, 1.7 and 1.4. Additionally recorded 224 minutes of tremor and 136 emissions of water vapor, gases and light ash content. The plumes were drifted towards the northwest direction.

8. Fuego (Guatemala)

As of January 8, 2020 - INSIVUMEH recorded strong strombolian-type explosions at regular intervals of 9 to 18 per hour that reached 14,760 ft - 15,740 ft (4,500 m - 4,800 m) altitude and drifted SW. In addition, they recorded white plume which reached approx. 13,770 ft (4,200 m) altitude and drifted SW. Incandescence material is ejected to an approximate height of 300 m above the crater with moderate to strong avalanches.
